Thread: Fake news

    Fake news

    Now, I'm not trying to get anyone wound up on politics, but the situation with the media and the press right now is just ridiculous.

    Specifically, this Russia thing. The press is saying things like "Russia hijacked the election", and "Russians stole the election", etc. These people are not idiots - they know exactly what they're doing, which is to mislead the public. They despise Trump, and they're dead set on destroying him. Anyone who looks beyond the headlines (and unfortunately, that's not the majority of the public) knows that:

    1. The election wasn't hacked. The Democrat National Committee's computers were hacked (or leaked by an insider).

    2. Hillary Clinton's (illegal, by the way) server was possibly hacked, or leaked, as well.

    3. There is zero evidence at this point that the Russians had anything to do with it. Many believe it was an inside job, with the info turned over to Wikileaks.

    4. And here's the big one ... the only thing leaked was factual information. The DNC can't even deny that. If the truth influenced the election, then we owe the hacker a vote of thanks.


    But the press and media want the public to believe it was some sinister plot by the Russians (eww ... the big scary Russians) and Donald Trump to deny Hillary the presidency. So they keep harping on this non-existent connection between Trump and Putin, convincing the brain-dead public that Trump is the next best thing to a clandestine Russian operative.

    I'm ready for the press to put up or shut up. If they can't substantiate their fake news stories, they should be made to shut up. Their right to free speech ends at the point that it infringes on someone else's rights.
    If someone blows up a school with a bomb they go after the bomber ... if someone shoots up a school they go after the gun.

    A privilege is just a right that has been taken away by government.

    Political correctness is cowardice wrapped in a lie.

    1. I agree.
    2. Yes, possible.
    3. Could be.
    4. Not sure.

    5. We all know we are suspect to attacks. So what is the fix? Same as it is on this forum. You only allow IP addresses you trust to access your internet. Period. Simple problem to fix. We have an Internet shut down day followed up by allowing access to ligit companies. Story is over soon. We cannot continue to allow hackers to play. Server companies allowing this stuff need to be put out of business. This includes VPN's.

    Yep, he nailed it ! The mainstream media were all made to look like fools when Trump won despite the flagrant pandering to & promotion of Hillary & her crowd.
    They will continue to lash out at the object that caused them so the red-faced, total embarrassment of being so totally wrong. Anything to redirect attention from their own incompetence & abject failure to 'call' the election correctly. I mean, seriously, how could anyone listen to their 'insight & analysis' now that they've been so outed

    Update: I am still happy that Scott Adams is a realist.
    "It's 106 miles to Chicago, we've got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark and we're wearing sunglasses." They're not gonna catch us. We're on a Mission from God. Hit it.

    The machine has been rolling for decades and Trump represents a 180. But he has to stop saying stupid ****. He is way to easy to criticize. I'm with a part of him except for the softballs he is giving the other side to throw him out of the park.

    But interestingly, the things Trump does don't actually hurt him. In fact, according to the polls, when he's criticized by the press and the Dems his support actually increases!

    Part if it is that many of his supporters identify with him, and freely excuse any verbal screw-ups he might make. And the rest of it is that he gets "backlash" support ... people who are pissed that he is being attacked, and go to his side.

    It's a phenomenon we haven't seen before. Trump is basically rewriting the whole script for the POTUS.
